Menopause: The ‘intense’ sign which can ‘persist for more than seven years’

The NHS explains that about eight in every 10 women will have additional symptoms, alongside period changes, for some time before and after their periods stop.

It notes: “On average, most symptoms last around four years from your last period. However, around one in every 10 women experience them for up to 12 years.”

A GP can usually confirm whether you’re menopausal based on your symptoms, but a blood test to measure your hormone levels may be carried out if you’re under 45.

Women can start perimenopause at various ages, with most women beginning to experience the symptoms of perimenopause in their mid-40s.
